62% of Florida Voters Say It’s Time to Move Forward by Adapting to the Pandemic; 25% Want Lockdowns Instead

Sixty-two percent (62%) of Florida’s Registered Voters think it’s time to move forward by finding a way to adapt to the ongoing nature of the pandemic. A Scott Rasmussen survey found that 25% believe it would be better to lockdown again until the pandemic is completely behind us.

Sixty-six percent (66%) of White voters in the state believe it’s time to move forward. So do 59% of Hispanic voters and 51% of Black voters.

The state’s most liberal voters are evenly divided on the question. Very conservative voters, on the other hand, say it’s time to move forward by a 79% to 14% margin.

Republicans overwhelmingly say it’s time to move forward. Democrats are more evenly divided. Still, by a 49% to 37% margin, a plurality of Democrats in Florida say it’s time to adapt rather than lockdown.

The survey of 1,000 Registered Voters in Florida was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from August 21-28, 2021. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 149 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. Online respondents were selected from a list of Registered Voters and through a process of Random Digital Engagement. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the state’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.

The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 3.1 percentage points.
